Joe has been labeled as an enthusiastic vibist who plays very instinctive with the energy of Elvin Jones, John Coltrane, and McCoy Tyner group. His vibraphone playing is quite different from the regular vibist. It is a new style with a twist of teetering on the edge and high energy and excitement.

August 7           Bad JuJu

Bad JuJu is a Delaware Blues band that is all about good old fashioned, shoot-from-the-hip blues, rhythm, blues and soul! Much of what we put out there for you may be on a list, but is not really scripted. I doubt that it will ever happen the same way twice, and that is what keeps it interesting, energized and full of vibe! We hope that you enjoy what you hear and can get lost in the music just enough to forget the day-to-day things that sometimes get in the way. We are Bad JuJu! www.roadhousebluesfest.com/badjuju

 

 


August 14          The Movies Band

One of Delaware's most successful rock bands of the 1970's & 80's, The Movies has been making a not so quiet comeback over the past couple years thanks to renewed interest in their sound and a rejuvenated spirit among original band members Junior Wilson, Bob Barr and Ray Strube. In their heyday, The Movies Trio built a raw-edged and rhythmic sound all their own and while the band initially played quite a few cover songs to fill out their gigs, it was their original music that really brought them into the limelight, especially their hit single, "Photograph".

Although creative differences sent band members in different directions, it wasn't before The Movies became one of the most popular performing bands at the Delaware and Maryland beaches and their popularity quickly spread up and down the East Coast (and beyond) making them one of the must have, must hear bands of their era.

August 21           Celtic Harvest

We connect with the past and to demonstrate the living tradition of Celtic (pronounced Kel’-tic) music.  Celtic music is as much a product of the movement of people away from Ireland and Scotland as it is the music within those two places.  Celtic Harvest is the creation of that emigration.   

Our music includes tunes (melodies without words) composed by fiddlers and whistle players and a blind harpist who played for the gentry of the great houses of 17th Century Ireland.  The songs come from all over the map--Ireland, Scotland, England, Canada, Australia, and, yes, even America--written by pop stars, folk legends, anonymous balladeers and even some from our own band members.
